I tried the same thing on one of my boxes today.  MailScanner processes went
through the roof, stuck there and tons of mail got piled up.  Went back to
2.44, restarted MS and ALL that mail got delivered :)

I upgraded to SpamAssassin 2.50 on a busy server running Red Hat 7.1 and the
server load went sky rocketing. I reverted back to 2.44 and the load is back
normal right now. SA 2.5 certainly has performance issues.
